FIRST Robotics Team 156
Robotics Plus Mayhem
Team 156 Robotics Plus Mayhem (RPM) is a co-ed, varsity letter team that supports the vision and mission of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). We strive to encourage interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through the activities we participate in. Our team is active all year round, with our busiest time being January through March. Every year in early January, robotics teams around the world await the announcement of the year’s “game.” We then are given exactly 6 weeks to design, build, and program a robot that can compete against other robots at regional competitions to win the “game.” Additionally, we write essays, devise a business plan, build a website, employ marketing strategies, modify/create images via photoshop, develop computer-aided drafts and animations, and reach into our community. The plethora of facets of the team ensures a place for everyone. RPM is a student-driven team that is aided and guided by volunteer mentors. Students who participate on our team learn invaluable public speaking, cooperation, dedication, commitment, time-management, responsibility, and leadership skills. Our team provides excellent opportunities to learn skills not taught in school. If you are interested in joining our team, please send an email to email@example.com.
